I guess mom is always right: We should never trust a stranger. Unfortunately, most of us don’t heed this advice when exchanging sensitive personal data and interacting freely across wireless and digital communication channels. From stolen intellectual property and customer data to operation shutdowns that leave people vulnerable, news headlines are giving us every reason to reconsider our false sense of security in the digital technology we use.
Our most recent blog on GDPR was one of our most popular to date. In the post, we explored what these impending changes mean and unpacked the business implications of these updated rules and requirements for protecting the data of your customers from the European Union.
The next logical question for SAP Business One customers is, "How do I make sure that my SAP Business One deployment is protected against unauthorized access, both benign and malicious?" The answer to that question is not only technical, but also tied to your business processes..
GDPR: Just another acronym or something that will affect businesses of all sizes around the world? If you do business with customers in the European Union, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has significant implications for your business, no matter the size.
Operational disruptions, damaged reputations, data theft, financial loss, and regulatory fines — headlines worldwide have covered every possible downfall of a growing number of successful cyber attacks. Thanks to the media, awareness of the importance of personal data and its value is opening up the eyes of executives, as well as their employees and customers.
Year after year, data breaches become messier, bigger, and more dangerous — and no business or person is immune from cybersecurity attacks. In fact, any form of cyber crime can impact over half of the world’s population. That’s roughly 3.8 billion people, up from 2 billion in 2015 — and that attack population will grow to 75 percent as another 2.2 billion people gain access to the internet by 2022.
Technology is driving a deep interconnection between all business process — from customer experience to supply chain management — to drive a stronger influence and leadership in technology as it relates to the business. Every day, we see this in action as companies such as Amazon, Netflix, and Uber go from startup to mainstream darling in a stunningly short amount of time by using technology to change the way products and services are delivered, as well as the products themselves.
Because of my experience and profile within the SAP Business One ecosytem (and now ONE.Source | The ASUG Community for SAP Buiness One), I get a lot of inbound questions about issues that people encounter with their deployments.
The cloud is quickly moving past the hype to deliver tangible and transformational value. Across the board, cloud-based products and services are growing to the point where more than 92 percent of all workloads will be processed in cloud data centers by 2020.
This week much of the ASUG team, including myself, is attending the Biz.ONE Conference and launching ONE.Source | The ASUG Community for SAP Business One.
Additionally, ASUG is hosting Cybersecurity Week, a series of featured webcasts and important content on one of the hottest topics facing our industry. While I hope to connect with many of you here at Biz.ONE, I did not want to miss this opportunity to chime in on this important topic.
